“A rich and rewarding experience of a glorious heritage.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

My decision to go to Gwalior was on the spur of the moment. That's how I've got the best of my travel stories. This time though I wanted my trip to be a little more than just me wandering the streets of some town aimlessly. Little did I know I was in for a royal treat when I booked my stay at Sambhaji Vilas. The luxurious suites, the delicious home cooked food, and hospitality in the very true sense of the term. My experience was full of new discoveries about the history of Gwalior, the lives of royals and the aristocratic lineage of the hosts. I thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of the estate with its lush greenery, verandas and cozy reading nooks. Overall, a grand experience and strongly recommended for anyone with a penchant for history.

sambhaji vilas is a beautiful mansion of the ancient times, belonging to the family of the legendary Kanhoji Rao Angre, 1st adimral of the maratha navy, the place is peaceful and full of warmth, the hosts arrange terrific sight seeing tours with a personal escort and offer to show sights that not even the MPT offers. their rooms are large suites, very comfortable with dressing areas and large bathrooms, their kitchen is very clean and the home cooked food is excellent. the staff is extremely hard working and hospitable and the environment as very peaceful. every suite is surrounded by greenery and sit outs. the security is strict. it is truly like living in aristocratic luxury. the day trips are fun and one learns a lot. gwalior itself has a number of fascinating places to see. the hosts are wonderful people full of knowledge which they gladly share with their guests. Sambhaji Vilas is a place one must stay at to truly enjoy a peaceful and stress free holiday.

It was a good thing that the hotel i initially booked fell short of expectations and i found my self at 'Sambhaji Vilas' , a home stay in Gwalior! It was a 'freezing' morning and i was welcomed with a hot cup of tea, which was really needed! The room i was given was clean,large, en suite and very comfortable! If you are a history buff then you HAVE to stay there! Living in a home of the legendary admiral of Shivaji, Kanhoji Angre, itself was a privilege!
I was supposed to stay only one night in Gwalior for business purposes, but then stayed a day extra, promising my wife that i would bring her here next time(which HAS to be soon!)! Living with the Angre family was just amazing! The mouth watering meals, trips to various historical sights and VERY engaging conversations kept me busy on the second day! The staff are courteous and helpful! Katiyani, her sister Tulza and brother Sarvagya really took care of all my travel, computer and sight seeing arrangements! Can't wait to be back!

Room Tip: If you love to travel, love dogs, and a friend of history and food, you MUST stay here!
